This week, I’ll be hitting the road for Denver to present at the Rocky Mountain Conference for Comics and Graphic Novels – attached to the Denver Comic Con. I’m giving a talk on my dissertation work entitled “Comics as a Tool for Inquiry: A Dissertation in Comic Book Form Reimagines Scholarship”, which builds on previous presentations including this one from HASTAC last December. Scott McCloud is keynoting, RC Harvey, James Bucky Carter, Maureen Bakis and more will be there presenting. Should be fun.
At the same time, my comic “Possibilities,” originally created for Game Show Detroit and reprinted for Game Show NYC last year, is back in print again as part of the annual Games for Learning Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. Thanks to organizer Arnold Martin for the invitation. To go along with that, i thought i’d share the “rabbit” page from “possibilities” along with the text key to it that explains all the rabbits – and the number of rabbits… More pages from Possibilities can be seen here and the entire piece is reprinted in the new collection of all my works of the last several years here. More dissertation pages when I get back. – Nick
